  • Participation of women activists from Belgrade and from around Serbia in Gay Pride in Belgrade in October was high. If we try to categorize the participants of the Pride, like diplomats, police in disguise, Belgrade citizens, LGBT citizens/activists etc. women activists were one of the pillars of the march in spite of all the threats and complications, especially those coming from other cities, that were happening couple of days before the Pride, followed by the attack on the office of Women in Black. 14 activists from south of Serbia (Leskovac, Vlasotince, Nis and Dimitrovgrad) urgently organized themselves to come to Pride.
